  12. 12. • Sustainable Product 1) Biopolishing in Dyeing Most cotton knit fabrics and garments have tiny, protrudent fibers and dead cotton that quickly become the cause of pilling once washed or worn. Pills are most often removed through the process called biopolishing. In biopolishing, cellullase enzymes remove the fibers from cotton which makes the surface of the fabrics and garments clean for longer. 2) Bleach Clean-Up Consistent bleach clean-up is key to even dyeing and shade reproducibility. Bleach clean-up is traditionally carried out using a reducing agent or hot water for rinsing, and both methods require a lot of water. An enzymatic approach reduces the use of water and energy. 3) Abrasion Including Prewash Abrasion is the process for creating stone-washed looks in jeans. There are two traditional ways of abrading jeans and obtain a stonewash look: Pumice stone and enzymes.

PTL also has plans to expand this capacity significantly. Company achieve this with its proprietary “ReNEW” process. ReNEW chemically “de- constructs” the long chain “poly-ester” hard plastic that PET bottles are made of into their original “building blocks” of individual esters in liquid form. After high purity filtration of this liquid, these esters can be substituted for high-grade conventional polyester petrochemical feedstock refined from crude oil (PTA and MEG). •Green initiatives Polygenta focuses on four products: high quality textile DTY, POY and chips and the sale of recycled ester to 3rd party polyester plants. In essence, ReNEW applies sophisticated chemical processes and controls – comparable to those used in high-end refining to generate high-purity feedstocks PTA and MEG – to an environmentally preferred feedstock (i.e. polyester PET bottles saved from landfills rather than crude oil, with its higher environmental impact).
